With spring drawing near, homeowners are gearing up to tackle the honey-do list. From interior cleaning to yard cleanup, the list can be overwhelming. However, one of the easiest ways to create a fresh new look is with DIY makeovers for your counter stools. The warmer days are ahead, and that means hosting friends and family gatherings is one the rise. Wow them with unexpected elements of surprise, like creative home décor.
In this article, we’re giving you a few ideas to spruce up your kitchen or bar area with quick and easy counter stool makeovers!
Scratches and chips are ugly
If you’re the proud owner of wooden counter stools, you understand how ugly scratches are. Not only do these unwanted elements stand out, but they can also compromise the integrity of the wood. Scratches reveal the true wood color – thus, if your stools are stained in a darker hue, the lighter undertones create a not so eye appealing landing for attention. Furthermore, exposed natural wood then becomes susceptible to spills and deeper, damaging scratches.
However, with the quick use of the right sandpaper and some stain, you can restore the natural beauty. Sure, this isn’t technically a new look, but it sure is a fresh look. Reviving your natural wooden stools back to the glory will make them stand out, in a good way!
Fabric showcases your style
Upcycling tired stools is an awesome way to bring your creative style front and center. Choosing a fabric that speaks to you in color and design is one of the best ways to design a unique piece of furniture. Easily added over wood surfaces or old, stained material, reupholstering a stool or chair is actually easier than you may think!
Let your uniqueness shine with a quick trip to your local craft store. Fabric is inexpensive and the result is beyond rewarding!
Considering the theme of your home
Although many of us are excited about the DIY idea, we may not be as innovative as we wished we were! However, if you take a step back and consider the overall aesthetic of your home, you’ll have an excellent starting point. For example, a beach cottage home can use themed stencils on wooden stools, or a boho style can use include mandalas.
Painting is affordable and easy
However, if you’re looking for a quick and easy solution, consider painting over the existing stool surface. One of the most significant benefits of doing so is that this solution is fast, affordable, customizable, and easily recreated when you need a new start!
